    Leo is kind of fragile right now. Is this a good idea?

    There will never be a ‘good’ time to dragoon Leo.

    GEE1A> I missed something, I guess. “shot gun wedding”?

    Alex is preggers?

    Over time, Alex henpecks Leo or turns him into a Stepford Husband.

    ^Not a chance. Leo will talk her down - or let her talk herself down - again. Alex gets away from herself, but Leo grounds her. They’ll be all right.

    I awoke from a coma 30 years ago to hear my girlfriend making wedding plans with her mother. She was 17. My first words awake were “Yes Dear”

    Leo is probably all for it. But he should at least think it’s his idea.

    Leo’s neither insecure nor stupid. So this might still work.

    I sometimes wonder how many of the posters forget this is simply a comic; a universe which exists only in the mind of Garry Trudeau. If GT wills it, tomorrow’s “Doonesbury” strip can show Leo rising up like the Incredible Hulk.

    “Just a few hundred people - nothing grand”

    The cocoon of self absorption that Alex lives in keeps getting bigger.

    Al - True enough, but we read comics with the conceit that we know the characters and can usually predict how they will react to a given situation. Yes, sometimes a situation arises from which we learn something we didn’t know about a character. But, I don’t think a strip in which characters regularly responded in a manner not consistant with their past behavior would keep a popular following for very long.

    Do I need to adjust my monitor, or is Kim turning green?

    Dan, I agree. GT is a good story teller, and like any good author has gifted his subjects with plausible, consistant personality types. In this case, Leo is an ISTP. Having him suddenly start behaving as an ENFJ would not be credible, and would not be consistant with his story-telling style.

    And Mike and Kim bring Alex back down to Earth. All will be well.
